President Biden’s age has become a growing concern within the Democratic Party, as officials and aides reportedly make adjustments to his schedule to accommodate his needs. According to the New York Times, they go as far as trying to leave him alone on weekends and scheduling public appearances between 12 p.m. and 4 p.m. to ensure he has enough rest and energy.
During a private dinner with former Democratic senators and governors from Biden’s generation, there was unanimous agreement that he is simply too old to run for re-election. Even local leaders have expressed concerns about his health, frequently reaching out to the White House for updates.
Despite these reservations, Biden officially announced his bid for re-election in 2024. However, the mounting concerns about his age and fitness for another term cannot be ignored. Voters are becoming increasingly worried about his ability to effectively lead the nation.
The limited access Biden has to the press is seen as a precautionary measure by his aides, who fear he might make major mistakes. Former officials who have known him for years have observed subtle changes in his behavior, such as needing support when sitting down and lacking his previous energy levels.
In an attempt to address these concerns, Biden emphasized during a press conference in April that age is just a number for him. However, this response has not alleviated worries among his advisors, who view his age as a liability. They go to great lengths to protect him, comparing him to an “aging king.”
A recent Quinnipiac poll found that a majority of registered voters, including independents and a significant portion of Democrats, believe Biden is too old to serve another term as president. This sentiment raises serious doubts about his chances in the 2024 election.
While the White House insists that Biden’s age has not resulted in major schedule changes, the reality is that his age is a factor that cannot be ignored. As Republican voters, we must carefully consider the potential consequences of having an aging president leading our nation. The ability to meet the demands of the presidency is of utmost importance, regardless of party affiliation.
The age issue surrounding Biden is one that should be openly discussed and debated. Our country deserves a leader who can effectively address the challenges we face, and the upcoming election will be a critical moment to assess whether Biden can overcome these concerns and secure another term in office.
